Apple, pear and raisin cake

Apple, pear and raisin cake

Serves 12:


– 3 red apples

– 2 pears

– 1 1/2 cups of raisins

– 2 cups of ground almonds

– 1 cup of pecans

– 1 cup of oats (if you don’t eat oats use brown rice or buckwheat flour)

– 1/2 a cup of almond milk

– 4 tablespoons of pure maple syrup

– 1 tablespoon of cashew butter

– 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

– 4 teaspoons of cinnamon

– 2 teaspoons of nutmeg

– 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract


Start by peeling the apples and pears, then core the apples. Chop the fruit into chunks, placing these in a saucepan with one teaspoon of cinnamon. Allow them to cook for 5-10 minutes, until they become nice and soft.

While these cook place the pecans into a food processor and blend for about 30 seconds, until they become small bite sized chunks. Remove and place to one side.

Then place all of the remaining ingredients, except the pecans and raisins, into a food processor for a few minutes until all nicely blended. Once the fruit is cooked add it and mix again before placing the mixture into a bowl and stirring in the pecans and raisins.

Pour the mixture into a lined baking dish and bake at 180C for about 40 minutes, until the top becomes ever so slightly brown and a knife can be stuck in and removed without any batter sticking to it.

Allow it to cool for about 5 minutes before removing the cake from the pan.

Slice, serve and enjoy!
